Today, take a minute (or more) and remember to allow imperfection.
Where does our idea of perfection stem from?
Is it from what we see on social or other media?
Is it some idea our parents instilled in us?
We may spend our entire lives striving to look or feel a certain way — to attain this idea of perfection.
Often, when we are hard on ourselves — it spreads out and affects others.
We want others to rise to the standards we have imposed on ourselves.
We have to reach the point when we finally lighten up — not just on ourselves but on others — loved ones and strangers.
Perfection is overrated — it can actually be boring.
Our flaws are what make us human — they make us real.
Forget perfection — instead, strive for learning — for improvement — for satisfaction — for forgiveness.
How does that sound?
